Day-Long Boy Scout Salute Planned to Remember 9/11
This coming Wednesday, September 11 is certainly a significant day in the history of the United States. For, it was on 9/11/2001, terrorists attacked New York and Washington D.C., bringing the World Trade Center towers down, and damaging the Pentagon. Several thousand lost their lives as a result, and it’s a day that all of America will never forget.
Here in Grand Rapids, the President Ford Council, Boy Scouts of America, will continue their tradition of their day-long salute in remembrance.
Each year, on 9/11, from sun up to sun down, the scouts have been at the Ford Presidential Museum offering the “Scout Salute.”
At 7 a.m., the Scout Salute will begin with the lowering of the flag from full-to-half-staff. There will be ceremonies through out the day, and it’s open to the public.
